I feel my opinion posts of the area just as acceptable as "praise" posts. It cannot possibly be that we only accept to praise. Maybe there is a new member that doesn't know much about the DR, he can get "unfiltered" opinions of the areas here. My opinion posts do not violate forum policy, People have used harsher language to describe other areas of the world, incl. the Bronx, for example.
That said, let's all calm down and eat some fruit. We all know no one likes their baby called ugly.
Where do you live in the Dominican Republic?
It is most certainly true that a wide swath of opinions are useful.
I actually would not suggest that anyone new to the Dominican Republic move to Santo Domingo este.
It is not soft like taking baby formula from a bottle and living up in the North Coast expat enclaves.
That being said you have an uncanny way of projecting your negativity about a place onto people.
Reference is made to your posts numbered #7, #10, #14, #18
We are not talking about anyone's baby up in here.
We are talking about a National supermarket chain opening a store on a major street in Santo Domingo este.
Have you ever been in a National store?
This chain tends to put their stores in areas where people are higher on the Socio economic scale.
Something for others to think about (since you have already made up your mind).
